The Tomatoship of New Delfos is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 14.856 billion Delfics enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Social Equality and the Environment are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Delfingrad. The average income tax rate is 29%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town. Crime is totally unknown. New Delfos's national animal is the Big Red Tomato, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the tomato.

New Delfos is ranked 6th in Taijitu and 3,488th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 40 on the Enoch Index.
